Army Stages Major Drill

The army launched the first leg of a major military exercise in the western province of Kermanshah. The first phase of the week-long drill, dubbed Beit-ol-Moqaddas 27, began on Thursday and will continue in two other regions across the country, Press TV reported. Brigadier General Manouchehr Kazemi, commander of the army’s Western Operations Headquarters, said new sniper rifles and domestically made military vehicles were tested during the first day of the maneuvers. The drill involves infantry, armored and artillery units as well as elite forces. Rapid reaction units and the Islamic Republic of Iran Army Aviation forces will also take part in the drill. The troops will make use of new weaponry and tactics designed to counter proxy wars among other objectives.
